Busy in the craft room - making stuff like Pillowcase Dresses

These little sausage fingers have been busy at work! Pillows, dresses, refashions - they're tired! 

Well I made this cute pillowcase dress using bandanas.  Super easy to make! Everyone makes them and there are tons of tutorials out there. If you would like a tutorial let me know and I'll post one showing how I make them.  I made this one for my besties 9 month old, the tote bag I made late last year was for her 13 year old and she loved it!

 I want kids so bad!!  I love making these little dresses.  I know I would enjoy making clothes for my baby!

Can I just say I want a pillowcase dress too!!  How cute is this? 


2 bandanas, 1 piece of ribbon and voila this cute dress
Chose this color ribbon!

I also made a little hair clip to match.
I made it, so I tagged it! (duh)


I think I'm gonna make a few to sale at the monthly open-air craft show that is in our area of town.  If you saw this would you buy it?
